A mailman in England was fined and made to do community service after launching a graffiti campaign in which he labeled tennis star Andy Murray a “useless Jock”.
The Scotsman reported that Darren Swain was convicted of daubing dozens of posters at a Royal Mail sorting office in Coventry with abusive comments, two of which featured “racist slurs.”
The word “Jock” is a slang term for a Scot. I prefer the Cockney London slang for a Scotsman which is a Sweaty…Sweaty Sock…Jock.
The 45-year-old, who dubbed himself “the scarlet pimpernel of the Post Office,” was caught after officials installed covert cameras and called in handwriting experts.
He was later found guilty of three counts of criminal damage and two of racially aggravated criminal damage.
He was sentenced to 200 hours unpaid work at Coventry Magistrates Court and ordered to pay $4,500.
It was not clear why Swain chose to aim some of his abuse towards Murray, the world No.4 in men’s tennis.
